The Government of India has brought together stakeholders from India and across the world, in order to explore how we can establish a Green Hydrogen ecosystem and foster a systemic approach for meeting the global goals for decarbonization through Green Hydrogen.

The three-day International Conference on Green Hydrogen (ICGH-2023), being organized during 5th – 7th July 2023 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi by the Government of India, was inaugurated yesterday by the Union Minister for Power and New and Renewable Energy R. K. Singh.

The conference brings together global scientific, policy, academic and industrial leaders to discuss recent advances and emerging technologies in the entire green hydrogen value chain. The conference will enable the sector stakeholders to explore the evolving green hydrogen landscape and innovation-driven solutions in the sector, thus strengthening the sustainability ecosystem of the sector.

The conference is being organized by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, in partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Office of Principal Scientific Advisor to Government of India and the Confederation of Indian Industry.

The fundamental aim of the Conference is to explore how we can establish a Green Hydrogen ecosystem and foster a systemic approach for meeting the global goals for decarbonization through Green Hydrogen.

Apart from domain-specific research interactions on hydrogen production, storage, distribution and downstream applications, the conference will also discuss green financing, human resource upskilling and startup initiatives in this area. The conference will enable to share and learn from international best practices in the sector.

The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi conveyed a message to the conference delegates, which was read out at the inaugural ceremony. In his message, the Prime Minister said that the conference provides an opportunity to global scientific experts, industrial community as well as academia to learn new perspectives and help establish a green hydrogen ecosystem. The Prime Minister highlighted the importance of sustainable energy solutions in navigating the challenges posed due to climate change. He said that green hydrogen will play a crucial role in our pursuit of sustainable growth, along with decarbonization.

The Prime Minister said that India is the only major economy to source 40% of our energy from non-fossil fuel sources nine years ahead of the target of 2030. “We have worked to enhance renewable sources of energy such as biofuel, ethanol, biogas, solar and green hydrogen. India has made significant strides in advancing green hydrogen technologies. Our National Green Hydrogen Mission provides roadmap for promoting research, development and deployment of green hydrogen across various domains. International collaboration is crucial in realizing our vision of a green and clean planet, and the ICGH 2023 provides a platform for fostering such partnerships. The deliberations will enhance engagement and exchange of ideas. May the conference succeed in aiding the creation of a flourishing green hydrogen ecosystem for the larger benefit of humanity.”
